IMS Open Day 2012

I went to the Open Day on time. However, there were a lot of information, classrooms and presentation should go. Therefore, i only visited Toddler, Kindergarten and Lower Primary (6-9).

Toddler Classroom

Max:16 Children + 2 Teachers (English + Mandarin)

Fee per month: $6,200


Age: 2 years old or above

(** A place in a Casa dei Bambini Class will be offered if assessment is OK + parents purchase of Debenture)

I didn’t have a chance to chat with the teachers as there were a lot of parents. Some parents keeping the teachers busy to answer their questions……

I looked around the classroom and as I expected this is a typical Montessori classroom. Most of the materials are wooden, classroom setting is nice (harmony).

The materials are encouraging the children self care like practical life activities (Transferring/ Spooning) + Dressing Frame……etc.

Some Sensorial Material you can find here. Like colours, shapes, dimension……etc.

I really like the school especially the primary sector. Becasue it is easy to find the children still love learning after 5. Typical HK students lost their interest in learning when they go to the primary school. This is the reason i hesistate to put my girl in local education system. Because both the teachers and students forget that learning is a reward, is a pleasure, is a privilege (I mean most of them).

For the Kindergarten sector and the toddler foundation, they are defintely good. However, school fee is not cheap. Besides, I have all the materials and I can teach my daughter in home instead (luckily i am a Montessori Teacher). So if I have enough money I will defintely put my daughter in this school.

Funny things, my hubby spent his whole Sunday morning to go through how to do the cube root.

I am very happy that I can see the real objects that work in the school which I have already learnt from a book^^
